Review: This Tender Land

This Tender Land This Tender Land by William Kent Krueger
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Like Krueger’s previous novel, I remember little about the story yet I remember the beautiful pictures painted with words and emotion. Writing style and character development are spot. On. 4 orphans run away after the Tornado God wreaked havoc and destroyed homes, families, hopes, and dreams. Stealing a boat, the float and row down a river with only a vague idea of where they are going. In truth, it’s not a destination but a place where they belong which is different for each of them. On their way, the experience the landscape of our country at that moment in time; The Great Depression, Hoovervilles, the dissonance of the Native Americans, and lack of social programs. On the way, they meet that still have good hearts and help them grow, love, and live.
